Professor Charles Nesson asks "How Open Will Harvard Be to Internet and Society?"
How Open Will Harvard Be to Internet & Society? That's the big question for the Internet & Society 2K7 Conference, set for May 31 and June 1, 2007. What would a more open Harvard mean or look like for faculty, for staff, for students, for alumni? Is there an understanding among all as to what open access is? The process and the conversations in the lead up to the Spring conference are integral in the shaping of the conference; at this Tuesday's lunch, Professor Nesson spoke about his hopes for Internet & Society at Harvard. As importantly, he solicited the spirited the needs, desires and perspectives of those affected by the policies across Harvard and beyond.
Charles Nesson, with fellow Harvard Law Professor Charles Ogletree, has been chairing biannual Internet & Society conferences since 1996. He has written about his prelinimary hopes for this conference over at his blog.
